Coconut Crinkle Cookies

These crinkle cookies are an absolute favourite with everyone that has tried them. They taste like a heavier version of a french macaroon or a lighter version of a coconut macaroon. There is a difference, and if you eat both, you will know what I mean. I do also make coconut macaroons and will be sharing that recipe as well one of these days, so you will know what I mean.

Anyway, without going on too much, as there really isn’t much to say other than they are SO delicious and moorish, here is the recipe.

Author: Tracey Francis of Essential Olie


  • 2 cups Pure Icing Sugar (sifted)
  • 1½ cups Almond Meal
  • ½ cup Desiccated Coconut*
  • 3 Egg Whites using 70g eggs (at room temperature)


  1. Preheat oven to 170°C (fan forced).
  2. Line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  3. Sift icing sugar into a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add all other ingredients to icing sugar and mix with a spoon until fully combined.
  5. Place teaspoon sized mounds onto prepared trays (I like using a size 70 ice cream scooper).
  6. Bake for 12 minutes.
  7. Cool on the tray before moving onto a wire rack to cool completely before eating.


* I like buying the Absolute Organic Desiccated Coconut as it has no added nasties.
